Question about 1997 Audi A4
A friend of mine has the same car as you, and in his car, he has to drop the gear selector to "2" in order to get the car going. When he drops it down to 2, about two seconds later the car goes into gear, and then he can drive it by shifting manually up. Once up to about 20mph he can put it in drive and leave it there. He only has to drop down to 2 when he comes to a stop. We've isolated the problem to the transmission control unit, which is under the carpet in the front passenger footwell. It's frighteningly expensive from a dealer (around $1600), but places like www.shokan.com (an Audi salvage yard near Woodstock, NY) sell it for less than $300. That's the route he's gone (he's waiting for it to arrive now).
